Fall’s New Light-As-Air Plaids

When paired with a no-nonsense pencil skirt and Kelly-green satchel, your weekend-favorite plaids are game to take to Monday and beyond.


Plaid, floral, and sheer, all in the same top? It should be a hot, trend-salad mess — but in the masterful hands of Phillip Lim (and paired with a ladylike, A-line jacquard skirt and pointy flat), it all works beautifully.


Next to sheer plaids, oversized blanket checks are our favorite way to keep plaids fresh for fall. Add a breezy sweater and baseball cap, and it’s checkmate.


Sure, you could go pretty — but we like taking this softly draped, sheer plaid in a full-on punk rock direction instead, with black leather cigarette pants and pointy Jimmy Choos that Debbie Harry would die for.
